MOYLOUGH is in mourning this week following the death of a local farmer who was killed in a tragic accident over the weekend.

He was pronounced dead at the scene and was taken to University College Hospital, Galway where a post mortem was carried out.
Martin was predeceased by his wife Nina and son Ian and is mourned by his five children Ivan, Ruth, Mark, Anne and Aidan and his partner Ann Mitchell. He is also survived by his sisters Mary and Regina.
